Kids and Toys

Before I had my baby, I had certain expectations about toys. I didn’t really want to give my boy fifty million toys. However, I figured out later on that lots of toys are almost a necessity for their development. However, there is a difference between a toy-toy and a learning toy. We have lots of learning toys and that is the difference.So, we have our home basically occupied by baby toys/stuff in almost all the rooms.

We also have things that really aren’t toys but help him develop also. Things like empty water bottles we give him to crush. This helps with muscle development in his hands. We also give him paper and junk mail to rip. That helps with the muscle development in his hands also. He also likes chewing on plastic cups and his sippy cup. This helps with his teething issues. Actually, many things areĀ a “chewie” basically that helps his teething. He even wants our hands to be his chewies but we tell him no for that one. We have the regular chewies that are sold for teething, but he seems to like non-regular chewies better.

So, you see, toys can be basically anything for babies. Some we buy and others just come to us in the mail. Other toys come from when we buy stuff on our grocery list. There’s no end to the items that can be a toy for a baby.
